Materials and design : the art and science of material selection in product design by M. F Ashby( Book )

90 editions published between 2002 and 2014 in 3 languages and held by 951 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"It is a human characteristic to wish to make things - to take materials and to shape, join and finish them, creating products. And, from the earliest flint knives to the most recent examples of consumer electronics, the form is chosen not only to provide the function but also to create the aesthetics and associations - the perception - of the product. Materials play a central role in this. Their selection to provide technical function is well studied and methods and software tools to achieve it are established and widely available. Their selection to create the aesthetics and associations - the ways in which the product is seen, how it feels and sounds, how it is perceived - is less easy to analyze, yet in today's competitive market, it is as essential a part of successful design as the functionality itself." "This book explores the role of materials and processes in product design, with emphasis on the ways in which they can be used to create the aesthetics and associations of the product, and the ways in which it is perceived. The methods are supported by some 100 profiles of materials and processes, emphasizing the attributes most relevant for product design."--Jacket
Cellular solids : structure & properties by Lorna J Gibson( Book )

36 editions published between 1987 and 2010 in English and Japanese and held by 643 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this new edition of their classic work on Cellular Solids, the authors have brought the book completely up to date, including new work on processing of metallic and ceramic foams and on the mechanical, electrical and acoustic properties of cellular solids. Data for commercially available foams are presented on material property charts; two new case studies show how the charts are used for selection of foams in engineering design. Over 150 references appearing in the literature since the publication of the first edition are cited. The text summarises current understanding of the structure and mechanical behaviour of cellular materials, and the ways in which they can be exploited in engineering design. Cellular solids include engineering honeycombs and foams (which can now be made from polymers, metals, ceramics and composites) as well as natural materials, such as wood, cork and cancellous bone

Metal foams : a design guide by M. F Ashby( Book )

25 editions published between 1998 and 2000 in English and held by 286 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Metal foams are at the forefront of technological development for the automotive, aerospace, and other weight-dependent industries. They are formed by various methods, but the key facet of their manufacture is the inclusion of air or other gaseous pockets in the metal structure. The fact that gas pockets are present in their structure provides an obvious weight advantage over traditionally cast or machined solid metal components. The unique structure of metal foams also opens up more opportunities to improve on more complex methods of producing parts with space inclusions such as sand-casting
Deformation-mechanism maps : the plasticity and creep of metals and ceramics by H. J Frost( Book )

14 editions published between 1982 and 1989 in 3 languages and held by 281 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Cellular materials in nature and medicine by Lorna J Gibson( Book )

4 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 229 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Bringing to life the fascinating structures and unique mechanics of natural and biomedical cellular materials, this book is an expert guide to the subject for graduates and researchers. Arranged in three parts, it begins with a review of the mechanical properties of nature's building blocks (structural proteins, polysaccharides and minerals) and the mechanics of cellular materials. Part II then describes a wide range of cellular materials in nature: honeycomb-like materials such as wood and cork; foam-like materials including trabecular bone, plant parenchyma, coral and sponge; and composites of cellular and dense materials such as iris leaves, skulls, palm, bamboo, animal quills and plant stems. Images convey the structural similarities of different materials, whilst color property charts provide mechanical data. Part III discusses biomedical applications of cellular materials: metal foams for orthopedic applications and porous scaffolds for regenerating tissues, including the effect of scaffold properties on cell behavior"--Provided by publisher
